Today on Black Friday, the Sisters in Stamping are focusing on the color black.  The ladies have invited me to participate in their Fabulous Friday again as a guest designer!  Surprisingly, black is a very difficult color to photograph.  The light seems to wash out the depth of the cardstock, so I’m a little disappointed in how my project looks online.  But believe me, this card is classy and beautiful in real life!


I decided to pair our focus color with gold, which is great for heat embossing on black cardstock.  It really makes the gold pop!  By using the Metallic Gold Encore Pad with the Gold Stampin’ Embossing Powder, the gold color is completely saturated, hiding any potential flaws.


I also added two strips of glimmer paper and further embellished with sequence and colored rhinestones.  I’m really going to miss the Black Gimmer Paper once it retires from the holiday catalog.  Crossing my fingers that it will come back in next year’s annual catalog!


Here are all the supplies used to create this project:
